Recently the social networking giant Facebook accidentally declared live users as dead, recognizing after solving the problem on Friday it had made a “terrible mistake.” Yes, it’s really unbelievable but, it’s true and it really happened. However, later Facebook fixed the error quickly.
Facebook Wrongly Declares Users Dead, Including Mark Zuckerberg
The social network giant Facebook accidentally declared live users as dead, recognizing after solving the problem on Friday it had made a “terrible mistake.” “For a brief period today, a commemorative message for profiles was erroneously published in other accounts,” said a spokesman for Facebook on Friday.
The US social media giant Facebook said that “this was a terrible mistake that we’ve repaired”.
The media reports indicated that about two million wandering memorials were placed in profile pages. The social network giant apologized and said a message meant for memorialized profiles was mistakenly posted to other accounts. This was a terrible error that we have now fixed. We are very sorry that this happened and we worked as quickly as possible to fix it.
“Damn. I should have used Facebook Live to show how I was a Facebook Dead,” said the editor of ‘Search Engine Land’, Danny Sullivan, in a message on Twitter. While we all know very well that the Facebook Live feature allows people to broadcast real-time video in this leading social network.

Even the co-founder and CEO of social media giant Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, was recollected in a message on his profile page expressing the hope that the people who loved him would be comforted in shared posts tribute to his life.
Erroneous notices contained links to the forms that can be submitted for accounts of people in the social network online memorials modified after they die. Part of the process is to show proof of death.
